As the countdown begins to the ioo" anniversary of national guardianship be,ginning at Rievaulx Abbey in 1917, collaborations are now underway to examine the surprisingly understudied archaeology of this heritage icon. Rievaulx Abbey has been a part of the North Yorkshire landscape for nearly 900 years. The name conjures images of the evocatively ruinous buildings at the heart of the former Cistercian monastery north of Helmsley. The abbey's history is more complex than that of its monastic phase, however, although it is this phase which is most well-known.
